A 4-Week Self-Guided Conscious Parenting Program for $197 (USD)
why i created this program
Last year, at a meditation retreat I attended, the teacher talked a lot about autonomy and a sense of personal authority. As a mother, and as person who was once a child seeking both structure and a safe foundation AND who experienced a desire to unfurl my own wings and fly beyond what I knew as a child, I am always wondering how I can foster both structure and autonomy in my own children. At the retreat I found myself asking: How do we do this? How do we encourage a child’s sense of autonomy and independence, and simultaneously be a guide to them along their path to independence. At what point is it guidance, and at what point is it interference or even imposing our will on our children in unhealthy and unhelpful ways?
The outcome of the reflection and study based on those questions is this 4-week self-study program.
So, I have a few questions for you…
Are you a mom who’s interested in conscious parenting and actively shaping your relationship with your children?
Are you a mom who’s interested in learning about the most current research that speaks to the health and well-being of a developing child?
Are you a mom who has a relatively solid foundation already, who’s committed to becoming more self-aware, but who wants to learn more about and adopt a rule by love approach to parenting?
I’m that mama, too, and I have just the program for you! And it’s called…
The Rule by Love approach to parenting
In this 4-week self-study program, you’ll learn about an approach to being in relationship to your children that can revolutionize the dynamic between you and them.
The rule by love approach to parenting is based on one principle idea
…and that is…sometimes the less we do, the more influence we wind up having, and the more positive the outcome. And what is birthed from that is more ease and joy that we experience in the process. The rule by love approach is about taking the path of least resistance in a positive sense, believing that, like water flows easily and effortlessly around objects in its path, the softest approach can overcome the hardest of objects.
This a process. An orientation. A philosophy and a way and an approach to life in general. Applied to our parenting, we discover more joy and playfulness in the process, as we also learn more about ourselves and our children.
The rule by love approach is for mamas who ask themselves the question: how do I both foster autonomy and authenticity in my child while still providing them with the guidance, structure and boundaries they need to find their way in the world.
In many ways this is a radical approach to parenting, and to life, that teaches us to TRUST that how we nurture the soil will determine the path that unfolds before our feet. The rule by love approach is about trusting ourselves, trusting our children, and trusting life itself. The consequence for our kids is an immeasurable sense of freedom and authenticity.
Who this program is for:
Mothers who already have a foundation in mindfulness and awareness-building practices
Mothers who already have exposure to concepts in conscious parenting, and who are interested in expanding on that understanding and find the rule by love approach appealing
Mothers who are curious and interested in challenging notions of parenting we’ve been exposed to, and how much of our culture still approaches parenting
Mothers who want for themselves the same sense of ease, freedom, joy, playfulness and authenticity in life that they also wish for their children
Mothers who have exposure to meditation, mindfulness or other awareness building practices and either have an on-going practice, or who wish to RE-COMMIT to a dedicated practice
